SYNOPSIS

“Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs"
Henry Ford, US automobile manufacturer (1863-1947)


Many IT and software projects still fail to hit their target - the implications and cost to a business can be huge. Whilst much attention is lavished on the technical aspects, the management of a project is often in the hands of people who are technically competent but inexperienced in project management.

This three day intensive project management training workshop provides practical and proven techniques guaranteed to keep the project on the rails. It is the result of many years experience of project work and includes numerous examples, helpful tips and practical learning.

The workshop is based on Australian Institute of Project Management and PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) recommendations.
